Newfield Roofing approached Monkey Toe to help them upgrade roof access to the large Bunnings store at Tower Junction after the owner, Ngāi Tahu Property Development Group stipulated they wanted the Monkey Toe aluminium walkways on their property.
The initial project was to install aluminium walkways to provide safe access to plants without damaging the roof. A second part of the project was to provide access to a large new roof expanse with a centrally draining gutter. This was part of the nursery extension and required special attention, as anything obstructing flow could cause damage to the building if there was any backlog.
Monkey Toe Group came up with a great solution to provide a trafficable gutter guard which not only provided easy access to all drainage points and rain heads for inspection but helped to keep out debris and blockages from snow and ice. Handrails were applied to protect staff from stepping on skylights over sections of the roof.
"We were pleased to have a comprehensive Monkey Toe roof access system installed on one of our high-profile retail properties. Monkey Toe assists us in achieving our vision to provide a safe work environment for everyone, protecting lives and assets. We now look forward to having a similar system installed to our other properties."Andre Thompson|Property Manager | Ngāi Tahu Property
